Help me figure out this marinade recipe!!
It was years ago (and quite simple, really), but I made a salmon marinade that roughly consisted of soy (or teriyaki?), brown sugar, and ??? (Maybe one or two other ingredients.)
I'd love to make it tonight and to grill the salmon - can anyone help me out with a great recipe that has these ingredients as its base? Also looking for proper amounts of each.
Thanks in advance!!
Sounds like a pretty standard teriyaki glaze/marinade to me. The one I'm familiar with consists of teriyaki (or soy, in a pinch), brown sugar, honey, lime juice (or rice wine vinegar, if you have), as well as finely minced garlic and ginger. It's good for just about any kind of meat - I often add a splash of OJ if using it for chicken or pork.
Some popular ingredients for many Asian flavors:
brown sugar (or any one of - sugar, honey, corn syrup, blended asian pear)
rice vinegar (sake, rice wine, refined rice vinegar)
fresh garlic (minced, pressed, mashed, or blended)
fresh ginger (shredded, minced, crushed, or blended)
green/spring onion or scallion
